Cheers to the men and women of the Wellington Fire District for thinking outside the box and reaching out to the community in an effort to find an arsonist.
Firefighters posted the following on their Facebook page:On Sunday, July 8, at 11:14 am, an abandoned house at 25763 West Road, in Huntington Township was intentionally set on fire. This fire has been ruled arson and investigators need your help.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Wellington Fire District at 440-647-2245 or contact Deputy Mickey Jackson at the Lorain County Sheriff's Office at 440-329-3801.

Arson is one crime that is very difficult for investigators to wrap up and bring someone to justice. Some arson fire investigations sit idle for so long some residents and business owners who have been victimized by arsonists feel nothing will ever be done. Wellington Firefighters have shown their residents that they will do whatever they can to solve this crime and they should be applauded for thinking outside the box.
